What makes an AP bf baby this fussy and needy?? HELP!!
My 10mo son has reflux and eczema. He eats a little bit of table food but not a "meal"... usually just a tbsp or two of whatever we're having. He has been clingy for as long as I can remember, but in the last couple of months he's been worse. Fussy, not sleeping well (he still wakes up at least twice per night, usually three times, and sometimes he wakes up at 4:00-5:00 just crying and won't go back to sleep or nurse), exclusively breastfed except for his few little nibbles of our food, co-sleeps, held often, never CIO...
He has been taking Prevacid for the reflux. I try not to use steroids on the eczema but when it gets bad there's just nothing else that will get rid of it (and believe me, I've tried everything). I recently removed gluten and dairy from both our diets (about 3 weeks) in hopes that this would clear up some of the problem. This was at the advice of my older child's sensory processing OT... we are also having my oldest child tested for celiac.
Anyway, I just can't figure out what is making him so unhappy! It's constant!!! He has a pediatrician appt next week but I'm pretty positive that the Dr won't have any good advice... she rarely ever does. I learn more from digging around on my own than I do from her.
